Bottle. Pours hazy golden amber with a gigantic puffy off-white head that makes it a pain in the butt to pour. Head lasts a long time and leaves big sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma is honey, grassy, pepper, rye spiciness. Flavor is light sweet, peppery, hay, yeasty esters; a bit fruity. Dry finish, minimal bitterness. Medium light body, high carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Orange hazy. Nice head of medium bubbles which dissipates rather quickly. Fresh, fruity nose w/ a bunch of a lavender baby powder character. Light to medium bodied. Lightly tart and crisp w/ just a hair to much bitterness (which is really not distracting). Vigorous carbonation. If you like hoppy saisons, this is a good one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bomber, $10 at Square One, Chicago’s near South.Poured into a tall flute, it shows off a light amber or slightly orange body with thing layer of foam atop. Has a big malty smell with warming spices that I’m picking up at arm’s length while still wrestling with the menu. Taste is big malts with the expected esters of a warm ferment, The hop bitterness just slightly curls the edge of my tongue, and a note of fruit and funk thread through as well. There’s a yeasty outline in the taste too, even before I swirl in the yeast dregs form the bottom of the bottle.

On cask at GTMW - Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Light spice on the nose, with some funk and a bit of fruit, most notably apricot. Taste is light fruit, yeasty goodness, and a light malt base. Smooth and well-carbonated.

Bottle at Dan’s, courtesy of Armin. Big thanks man! Pour is hazy lemon in appearance with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Tart lemon peel, wheat, white pepper, light pineapple, yeast, and pear in the aroma. Taste is very spicy, bread, pepper, light pineapple, booze, citrus, and band-aid. Nice. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very different beer. Fruity smell. Darker yellow pour with sticky white head. Lots going on with the taste I can't put my finger on. But somehow comes out good. Yeasty? Peppery? I think!
